are you sending to a user on the server.
Do a test from the client:

Code: Select all

sendmail user@host
and check the logs on the client and on the server.

The mail leaves the client to the server,
but it is not delivered.

Are you sure you are sending it to the right account?

sometimes you need to also add the domain name (even if it is not a public domain).

Code: Select all

sendmail user@host.domain.com

thanks, that was indeed the problem.
When I add the domain name,
the mail is delivered.

I thought that before, the hostname was enough?
